78 GA.jpgNew user from Ont, Canada. Just joined so I can get some info from the knowledgeable ppl here.
Just saved a 78 Grand Am from the junkyard. I work at a Auto recycler and it show up last week. I'm still shaking my head as to why someone when scrap this car.
It runs and drives, looks like brand new paint, and a truck full of parts. its like a gift from the Car Gods lol.

Let's just say I paid a little more than scrap value for it!
Looks to be mostly stock, has true dual exhaust and sounds like its got a mild cam,
Engine looks original but going to get the casting numbers off the block and check for sure.

Welcome to the site. Thanks for saving that car. Tell me, are you out in the Kitchener/London area? I saw a car that looked like that one out there for sale a few years ago.
